If I had a twin brother, I don’t know if I’d be the good one or the evil one.
I think I’d be the good one…Or maybe that’s just what I want *you* to think, dear journal.
Maybe I am as “bad” as Liver-eatin’ Johnson. Any Crow warriors around had better be careful, just in case.
There’s something very frightening about a knife attack, more so than a fist, gun or a bomb. The intimacy of the action along with the type of wound delivered is the most scary to me. I think I’d rather have a bone broken or a bad burn than be stabbed for the same amount of damage… if you can even quantify that in real life terms.
Man, even in a goatee, my mojo is indeed mighty. Better than a wrench on Yvonne MacGruder. I prefer having a shaved throat and cheeks, too.
Who Named It? a database of medical conditions, etc. which carry a person’s name.
Random Scotto factoid: I haven’t set foot inside a K-mart for maybe two or more years. (I suspect the last time I was there was June 9th, 2002).
Florida Handy dandy – Miami-Dade E-Maps: the county has put up a new page of maps and data. There’s also a new address for Broward’s Maps and Stats page.
Cosmo’s 10 hot new sex positions.
Um… new? Somehow, I bet there was some adventurous soul out there well before the 14th century doing most, if not all of these. Still, it never hurts to review the material, eh?
The dang Pentagon “wasn’t a 757 on 9/11” strike rumor is going around my friends list again.
I tend to lean with the snopes assessment.
Bones Suggest Women Went to War in Ancient Iran
TEHRAN (Reuters) – These days Iranian women are not even allowed to watch men compete on the football field, but 2,000 years ago they could have been carving the boys to pieces on the battlefield.
DNA tests on the 2,000-year-old bones of a sword-wielding Iranian warrior have revealed the broad-framed skeleton belonged to woman, an archaeologist working in the northwestern city of Tabriz said on Saturday.
“Despite earlier comments that the warrior was a man because of the metal sword, DNA tests showed the skeleton inside the tomb belonged to a female warrior,” Alireza Hojabri-Nobari told the Hambastegi newspaper.
He added that the tomb, which had all the trappings of a warrior’s final resting place, was one of 109 and that DNA tests were being carried out on the other skeletons.
Hambastegi said other ancient tombs believed to belong to women warriors have been unearthed close to the Caspian Sea.
The body of Russian Buddhist lama Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov, who died in 1927, did not decay over a 75-year period, medical experts and historians say.
The Russian officials announced that samples taken 75 years after the burial indicated that the organics of this man’s sin, hair and nails is no different from that of a living person.
The body of Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov, who, as Hambo-Lama, was the spiritual leader of Russia’s Buddhists from 1911 to 1927, was first exhumed in 1955, at the Lama’s request. When a third exhumation in 2002 still showed no decay, medical experts decided to examine the miracle.
His joints bend easily, soft tissues can be forced effortlessly, just like with a living human being; after the coffin cover has been removed, we could all sense sweet smell coming out from the inside, Galina Yershova, Professor of history at the Russian State University for Humanities, said.
The body has become holy for Buddhists in the Russian region of Buryatia, where it rests in the Ivolgin Buddhist Monastery in the regional capital of Ulan-Ude.
|Taco Bell doesn’t use gloves in Florida|
Considering that Taco Bell is one of the top ten filthiest food franchises, that’s pretty creepy.
What’s more creepy is that I used to frequent them a lot… I was picking up a soda pop at the time I took the photo (Friday afternoon). That certificate by the cash register reaffirmed my decision to skip a bean burrito. Seeing some mouth-breathing minimum wager stick his bare hand into a bin of lettuce is more than enough added incentive. Somehow, I don’t know if my worries would be allieved even if they did wear gloves.
A quick google search turned up this – A Derry woman whose family became ill after possible exposure to hepatitis A at a Taco Bell sued the restaurant and its parent company Thursday.
